About Bangkokrandy

Favourite music
My theme song: "It's My Life", by Bon Jovi
Baton Rouge, Lousisana, USA - but I don't plan to die there.
Favourite movie
9 1/2 Weeks with Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke. Almost every scene in the movie is a cinematographic masterpiece.
English, German, Thai
Favourite quote
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. -William Pitt, British prime minister (28 May 1759-1806)
Interests and hobbies
Travelling, reading, photography, exercising and stock market investing.
One thing I want to do before I die
Favourite book
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
My friends describe me as
Tall and skinny. (Even though that might be true, I meant it as a joke - as I'm sure it was intended that I write something a bit more philosophical here.)
